Sandy Sandy, of Burlington County, NJ, has painted this white German shepherd, Sasha, who's in the local shelter. This is Sandy's fourth painting for the project. She's eager to donate her first three oils, but they're not yet dry, so she painted this one in watercolors.
Here's what she writes on her blog: "What a pretty white shepherd Sasha is. She is a bit shy at the shelter - her former owner couldn't take care of her any longer, and they want you to know that Sahsa is good with kids, but should be in a home with women only. Sasha would need to adjust to a home with men. They also said that Sasha likes to play with squeak toys. Can you give this young girl a loving home?"
Sandy also sent us a letter she's going to bring to the shelter with her paintings, and she will let us know how the shelter folks respond.
Already, Sandy has gone above and beyond the call for our project. She's launched herself into it with an enthusiasm that's boundless contagious. Sheila and I would like to award her the AFSA medal of thanks!
